Hello friends,

FAWM 3 for me.

My challenge this year - write a lyric each day!

Currently struggling to finish a book on (basic) music theory for songwriters and looking for test drivers (readers) - send me an email if you're interested!

I'm reserving the no-nonsense stuff for the book, so expect a lot of nonsense here 😀

Open to collabs!

Looking forward to new music from favourites @mattblick, @fearlessflight2014, @petemurphy, @susyblue, @ryako, @oddbod, @mikedebenham, @tinam, @boyatheart, @adforperu, @sherrycanary, @hamiltonpoolhall, @izaakalexander, @deena and more.

Hoping to cross paths with old friends @nine and @lowhum.

Happy songwriting!

    Thank you for your very kind words on my songs. It's always nice to know my songs are able to reach people.

    Hi Lee

    Thanks for the comments man! The reverb on 'adeline' is largely from my living room. The song was recorded on a single fib 8 mic with the both of us sitting on the floor on either sides of the mic. And then there's some plate reverb added, i think it was the new abbey road plate -plugin by wawes

    Thanks for still listening and commenting.

  • @mkd  Mar 27

    Hey, thanks for all your listens and comments! How cool to be reminding you of a bjork song!

  • @metalfoot  Mar 26

    Thanks for the listens and comments. Greatly appreciated!

  • @bking  Mar 21

    Thanks for your comments. I added a couple of links to Cenote Sagrado to provide a bit of historical context.

  • @mmmmarcus  Mar 18

    Thank you very much for all the nice comments on my tracks! Glad you liked them, and will take your suggestions into consideration when making final versions of the songs!

  • @kovbleu  Mar 14

    Thanks for all all the comments! Yeah, I had tried screaming on "Point of No Return." The original version that built up with the "silent" to ..."not anymore" was a giant scream - but super flat and my voice was shredded. When I went back to try and redo that part it was 2:30 in the morning and I couldn't get as loud as I wanted in my house because people were sleeping, so I shoved an iffy screamer to the background / harmony and buried it a little and just had to go with what I posted. I'm sure I'll revisit that part again, because I agree - it needs a release! 😀

  • @sbs2018 Mar 14

    Thanks for the listens and comments. Good to know!

  • @driftwood1  Mar 14

    Thanks for the listens and great comments!

  • @ampersandman  Mar 13

    Thanks so much for your kind, thorough, detailed and knowledgeable feedback! Really appreciate it.

  • @zoom  Mar 12

    Hi! Thank you so much for the kind words 😀
    Still working on getting demos for all my songs, so it's much appreciated !

  • @richard Mar 8

    Hey! thanks for the feedback on my song. I'm not sure what all of the lyric meant at the time and i'll probably go back for a rewrite to make it all make sense later on. 😀 Thanks for pointing out the logical gaps though 😁

  • @jibbidy34  Mar 2


    Oh my goodness Dupletarion Warrior you are AWESOME!! You took the time to write 200 comments and listen to all those songs! Thanks for your hefty contribution to our community. You have 200 thank you’s from your fellow FAWMers and from me! Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!

  • @lanasolyluna Mar 2

    Thanks for your comments! Glad you enjoyed the new “songa” 😀

  • @ryako  Mar 2

    Hey, thanks for your post and comments! That's just really nice of you.

  • @rustyp  Mar 1

    Hi, Thanks so much for your comments on "Must Be Dreaming."
    I know FAWM isn't about production, but I had been wanting to work more on adding complementary lines and I appreciate your encouragement there. I felt that worked pretty well.

    The rhyme. 😀
    Well, I wanted to express the idea that we had both agreed "'til death do us part." But I felt that was kindof a morbid sentiment. So I was looking for a way to say that, without saying it.
    But death would be a last goodbye. So that's where I landed and I didn't look any further for a rhyme. 😀
    I don't know, maybe I'll give it a listen to see if I can improve. 😀

    Thanks again so much!

    😀

  • @mmmmarcus  Feb 27

    Thank you very much for the warm comments on "Help Yourself"! Glad you enjoyed the track!

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 27

    Thanks for the feedback - Normally I wouldn't have changed to the chorus so early - I would have had a double verse beforehand but for the sake of the key change challenge, getting to it quickly to make the point seemed the right thing to do here... cheers though for the comment. C to D seemed to be a safe change for a newbie to key changes!

  • @mikedebenham  Feb 27

    Thanks for all the witty comments this month. I've been a terrible listener this fawm - a couple more days then I can relax and get to it. Good to see you back and congratulations on 15(+?).

  • @zecoop  Feb 27

    You are right!! I just marked it as a conversation... Thanks for listening! 😀

  • @majordanby  Feb 27

    Thanks for listening and commenting on “at night I hear the river”. It’s like you were in the room, we had no idea what we were doing and Dan pointed out right from the start that there was no real chorus: too many minor chords. The gaps were added to pad out the song. A definite experiment.

  • @engebretsen  Feb 27

    Hi and thx for comments. I may have a little surprise for you… :
    I added some very chill drums on "Traces of". If You send me your email, I can send you the file. Maybe you don´t like it all, and that´s ok. But I think you want to hear it anyway (Or I can upload it on fawm).. my mail is: tseart@gmail.com

  • @mleverette  Feb 26

    @leepat thanks for listening to & commenting on New Attack. 😀 I'll have to listen to your songs soon. My work wifi has a firewall against soundcloud. 😞

  • @tjeff  Feb 25

    Hi, and thanks so much for listening to and commenting on several of my songs. Have been out sick for 6 days, which really sucks. Just wanted to let you know I appreciate it!

  • @engebretsen  Feb 23

    Thx a lot for comments on "Winswept clouds". Yes agree: Bass must be louder.

  • @charliecheney  Feb 23

    Thanks again for the sweet comment on I Love You Madly. All those images were taken from our past two years of touring. Granite canyon is from Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Geyser is from Yellowstone. Crater is from Mount St Helens, etc... it's easy to kick out a lyric for me if it's real, you know?

    I am not familiar with @suzyblue but I just looked at her website and she looks awesome, thanks for the hot tip. And thanks again for all the love, right back atcha. Hooray FAWM!

  • @charliecheney  Feb 23

    Hi Lee, thanks for the kind words on Eleanor and Whiskey Pistol. The bridge on Whiskey pistol is all veiled sexual innuendo is all, haha, nothing fancy. 😀

  • @jibbidy34  Feb 22


    Congratulations Centurion Soldier! You wrote 100 comments for your fellow FAWMers!! You made this place even better. You took your time to listen to other people's songs and you have 100 thank you's from all of them and from me! Here’s your badge. Excellent work and keep busting’ those zongs!!

  • @theawkwardsleep Feb 21

    Hey! Thanks for the comments. Will be back round soon to listen again. 😀

  • @mdavisto  Feb 21

    Holy shit. Thank you so much for recommending @ryako holy shit!



    brb freaking out

  • @boyatheart  Feb 21

    Glad you liked the song. It got a good response!

  • @lcad Feb 20

    And yes, A6 is beautifully dreamy, especially open on guitar. I think the even chords are dreamy and pink, the odds are mostly blue.

  • @lcad Feb 20

    Thanks for your reviews on my tracks! On Vertigo it's just going from IV to IV-#5. I've been substituting IV - IV7 - I for IV - IV#5 - I a lot recently. It gives the same transition but its a bit more dramatic and less bluesy. You get a tritone on either one, they just resolve a little differently.

  • @lowhum  Feb 20

    about the tango and the 3rd person - I think is better - it's like a zoom effect - you start from afar and in the chorus move to more intimate viewpoint

  • @ryako  Feb 20

    Thanks for your comment! Man, I had a really hard time with those drums. Like, I had to go back and reprogram that shit several times.

  • @fonte  Feb 19

    Haha, yes, 'frustration'! Was definitely feeling that... I could also go through that Stevie Wonder song that has loads of rhymes like that. And no I don't do chord changes, it's way too hard! 😉

  • @expendablefriend  Feb 19

    Hi @leepat, thanks for the collab invite. I'm afraid I'm done for the month though (barring one possible song where I'm waiting for some vocals to mix in to a backing track I made). Unfortunately real life has caught up with me, and I need to spend the next couple of weeks cracking on with some jobs outside of FAWM. Maybe we could collab another time, though? Sorry again.

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 12

    Thanks for the comment on nobodys child and the song to listen to.

    "I" could be what you want it to be as i see music as art I like to leave things for interpretations.

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 11

    Just a note to say I’ve culled a couple of ‘toe the line’s now thanks to you. That was helpful.

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 11

    Damn, I try hard not to repeat myself too much. ‘Toes’ and ‘lines’ huh? I’ll change that line. Thanks for your helpful comment.

  • @frey Feb 11

    Thanks for the comment on "Does Stevie Wonder?" but I am a little bit confused 😮
    I didn't put much thought into what I should name the different parts, it's just what made sense to me. 😀 Then again, I'm only an amateur and most of the time I have no clue what I'm doing. So if you have any suggestions ... !

  • @boyatheart  Feb 10

    Hi. I'm currently a bit of a lame duck as I've been struck down with a virus, but I'll see if I can do something with your lyrics for "Love is Round" when I'm feeling more normal.
    If that's OK. I don't want to promise anything, but those lyrics look like fun, so it'll be fun trying. Thanks 😀
    If anyone else wants to have a go at it then of course let them!

  • @deena  Feb 10

    Hi Lee Pat! So nice to see you here again and thanks for your comments!!

  • @pabrizzer Feb 9

    Sail Your Sturdy Vessel - thanks for the visit. Will check out Robert Palomo.

  • @pabrizzer Feb 9

    Thanks for the listen to Sittin' by the Harbour!

  • @engebretsen  Feb 8

    Thanks for comments on "If I said I´m sorry". Much appreciated.

  • @boyatheart  Feb 6

    Thanks for the positive comments. Are you going to post any demos this year?

  • @lowhum  Feb 5

    Yeah, the initial thought was to write them small, but what the heck - let the "true scholars" worry 😀)

  • @fearlessflight2014  Jan 21

    Nice to see you here again!!
